He had a plan…
She changed it all!
Major Aidan Murphy arrives in the charming small town of Hollydale to take full guardianship of his six-year-old nephew. Only there’s a slight problem—his vivacious, fiery co-guardian. School teacher Natalie Harrison has no intention of letting Aidan take her best friend’s heartbroken little boy away. Now Aidan must convince Natalie that blood is stronger than love…even if his heart tells him otherwise.
What a fun meet cute this novel had! I was laughing out loud at Aidan misunderstanding what Natalie was complaining about and Natalie misunderstanding who Aidan was! Of course, once the situation became clear, the real conundrum began. As co-guardians, living in different places, what arrangement would be best for Danny?
In this opposites-attract story, the romantic tension that built between Natalie and Aidan was heightened because even as they fell for each other, all signs seemed to be pointing to imminent heartache when Aidan left, either by himself, or taking Danny with him.
Danny was very well-written. He was a grieving little boy who loved his Aunt Natalie and his Uncle Aidan. The moments where he missed his mom and was reluctant to laugh and have fun because he missed her were very sweetly written.
I enjoyed this small town story. I have read the other two books in the series, so it was fun to return to Hollydale, however, this novel can definitely be read as a stand alone. I am hoping that there will be a future book starring Natalie’s twin sister, Becks.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
